Always Sunkissed - Instagram Healthy Food Accounts

6 of My Favorite Instagram Accounts for Daily Healthy Food Inspiration

I love following food accounts on Instagram. They give me insights on food, body positivity, mindfulness, and recipes. When I see healthy food that looks delicious and beautiful, it has me craving healthy food, instead of junk food and being able to see them when I scroll through Instagram gets me in the healthy, sunkissed state of mind.

Got to go to Bar Thursday with my roommates, my little and my grand little. Celebrated Senior Week with my sorority. Throughout the month, I got to learn how to do different Social Media promotions to learn more and work on my independent study paper. I get to finish strongly in all my classes before finals week even starts, I have only two finals left. I got to celebrate my last Spring Weekend with my boyfriends Luau and the carnival. I got to go to “Charge Out”, where I picked up all of my graduation stuff, such as my cap and gown and stoles. I also found a great graduation dress. P.S. this isn’t it, but it’s a sneak peek.

And the countdown begins… 🎓

I went Alum with my sorority, Phi Sigma Sigma, which was so surreal and I’m so excited to move into a new chapter, but am sad to leave this one behind.

Why You Need to be Your Own Best Friend & How To Do So

As I’m currently writing this, I’m sitting with head in a sink at my hair salon. Every time I come to get my hair down, It is my time to actually be able to read my book and put myself in deep thought and reflection. I unfortunately never am able to take the time to read like I would like to, but on this day, every 8 weeks, I get to drink red wine and read my book and maybe take a nap when my Head is in the sink 🙈

Moving on, the book I’m currently reading is Girl Boss by Cara Alwill Leyba. I could go on and on about how great this book is, but I don’t want to ruin It for you. So, you’ll just have to pick up your copy right here. OR head on over to my Instagram and enter to win your very own copy. Now, I will share a few things I do love about this book. It really helps you to think about your inner #girlboss and It is basically a work book along with a guide. There are even incredible stories from different empowering women that I, personally, would love to meet.Read More »
